Sandra Graham of Partners in Crime writes: "Its that time of the year again...the Queen of Crime Short Story Competition is on. But hurry, get those dastardly fingers tapping away at the keyboard, the deadline this year is 28th October, 2011. This year, because we know that a good crime needs room to move we've increased the word limit to 5000 words. That's right, 5000 words to plot, connive and solve. So what are you waiting for? More details will be revealed on the Partners in Crime website at the beginning of October (I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised) so don't hesitate to go to www.partnersincrimesydney.com."
